SINGAPORE: The Singapore Botanic Gardens has been ranked the top park in Asia for the second year in a row in the TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice awards, the travel site announced on Tuesday (June 17).

In second place was the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park in Japan, followed by the Nan Lian Garden in Hong Kong. Gardens by the Bay’s Cloud Forest Dome also made it to the list, coming in at the 25th spot.
